International trade concerns imports, exports, agreements and licences. So it’s important to keep abreast of relevant laws and regulations (or to know where to find them). We and our translators therefore monitor EU developments, Brexit impacts, US‑China relations, international trade agreements and of course Incoterms: international commercial terms published by the International Chamber of Commerce.
To operate in the world of international trade, you must of course have an international mindset, curiosity about the world around you and multicultural awareness. International trade builds bridges between people and cultures and we aim to play our part in
that. A logistics organisation once launched the slogan ‘Without transport everything comes to a standstill’. That’s true, but in our minds we always add ‘there’s no transport without translations’.
And that’s particularly relevant in this sector when it comes to meeting deadlines. In that context we quote the old DHL slogan: ‘We keep your promises’. We wish we’d thought of it ourselves.
